Lonnie Young
Posing in a soapy bathtub with her pythons for a Men’s Magazine photoshoot.. Both snakes have had their mouths sealed shut with adhesive tape, as was generally the practice with dancers performing with snakes.. Eventually, local ASPCA organizations would catch up with Ms. Young ( and most notably: Zorita ) to end this cruel practice!
